2014 Acura TSX Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
This TSX delivers enough sportiness to be enjoyable while maintaining solid credentials as a well-rounded and capable car. An economical four-cylinder engine delivers responsive performance, the front seats are excellent and the interior is well appointed. But in some ways the TSX feels ordinary. The ride is nervous and handling, though agile, is let down by steering that is short on feedback.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"It is probably the second-best car that I have ever owned. Only my 2006 Acura RSX Type S was superior."

Anonymous, ID (2014 Acura TSX)

"Very responsive steering and handling."

Edward S., NY (2014 Acura TSX)

"The car handles quite well, and is quite adept at cornering. I am confident that merging onto a highway is never a concern due to TSX's acceleration; the MT6 transmission is a pleasure!"

Robert B., MA (2014 Acura TSX)

"I love the acceleration and handling."

Anonymous, ID (2014 Acura TSX)

"Pleasant, but not sporty handling. Tight turning circle."

Anonymous, CT (2014 Acura TSX)

"Very good performance while providing reasonable gas mileage."

Anonymous, CA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Handles like it's on rails."

Anthony B., IA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Amazing performance from a 4 cylinder engine"

CAL H., FL (2014 Acura TSX)

"The turning radius, like my former 2001 Acura TL, is poor."

Anonymous, VA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Crisp handling and decent acceleration for the 4 cylinder."

ANDREW B., OR (2014 Acura TSX)

"Acceleration is very quick & handles well on any road."

KAISER D., TN (2014 Acura TSX)

"it's good acceleration and sharp handling."

Anonymous, MA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Very peppy. Nimble accurate steering."

Anonymous, DC (2014 Acura TSX)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Very comfortable seats, but would like more rear-seat legroom."

Anonymous, CA (2014 Acura TSX)

"For a small-medium-sized car, the comfort is very good. I wish it were 4WD, however."

Anonymous, NM (2014 Acura TSX)

"The TSX is a fairly quiet car except on particularly rough roads. It is very comfortable in both front and rear. It’s a little hard to get in and out since we’re not 20 years old any more! But once inside very comfy! The ride is slightly firm but comfortable, little roll in corners."

Karen H., HI (2014 Acura TSX)

"For a somewhat-sporty sedan, the ride is shockingly comfortable. I've driven on several multi-hour trips with no road fatigue whatsoever."

Robert B., MA (2014 Acura TSX)

"For a 4-cyliner great mileage, and acceleration."

Edward S., NY (2014 Acura TSX)

"Cabin noise is quite high for a so-called luxury car."

Anonymous, CA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Peppy, but comfortable. Easy to drive & has great fuel economy in-town."

KAISER D., TN (2014 Acura TSX)

"The seats are all day comfortable. I have had several 10 hour /500-600 mile driving days and, with just a few pit stops, don't feel like I need a break."

ANDREW B., OR (2014 Acura TSX)

"The driver's seat is extremely comfortable and adjustable. The front passenger's seat is tolerable for short distances, but lacks lumbar support and adjustability. We had to purchase a $300 seating support cushion to make the passenger seat comfortable for long rides. Also, we would have preferred a keyless entry and startup system."

SHERYL R., VT (2014 Acura TSX)

"Very poor comfort in the drivers seat, main reason why I will not buy this style vehicle again. Other than that the car is great."

Anonymous, NH (2014 Acura TSX)

"Very noisy for a car that is supposed to be a "luxury" brand."

Anonymous, CA (2014 Acura TSX)

"Great car"

Anonymous, FL (2014 Acura TSX)

"lumbar back is best I've had"

Anonymous, MA (2014 Acura TSX)

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Styling is very similar to the 2011,2012, 2013 model years. Although not bad, very little distinction between model years."

EDWARD S., NY (2014 Acura TSX)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
